This is my first post on the forum as I just found it when searching google for "how to get rid of trojans". Now you understand why I have come to this site.
My Norton antivirus program says that it has successfully eliminated them, but every startup, and especially when I boot firefox, I run into problems: sometimes a little 'adware remover' web browser opens up prompting me to click it "to remove infected files". So its messing with my computer and I'm trying to fix it.
I recently downloaded autoruns to look for the trojan(s). Right now I'm scanning through files on my laptop (I'm using a different desktop to create this message). I just found a startup file in the logon tab called "mode shim", there is no description, the image path says the file is not found, and the file is named active glue.exe... This is by far the most suspicious startup file I found after following the instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-remove-a-trojan-virus-worm-or-malware/ ... I couldn't find this exe file in the database, so here I am posting...
Hope to hear from you soon,
